Sans toit ni loi

Mixed media, dimensions variable, 2010

The installation contains led screens placed inside bird cages. There is transcripted singing of thirteen different birds running on the screens. The work is commenting human being’s eager to rule over nature. Wild nature is tamed and cleared for culture and civilization for example by domesticating animals, classifying species and keeping pets. Installation includes also soundtrack where a visitor can hear original recordings of birds mentioned in the cages. Absence of real living birds represents fragility of nature and thread of extinction.
